Tech Support Thursday: Enterprise Installation Requirements
Hello everybody, welcome to another week of Tech Support Thursday.
This week we’re mired in Version 5 development and so I’ll make this one short and to the point for all of those Database Administrators and Network Admins all over the world who use our software and plan to upgrade to the full-blown Enterprise Edition of the software:
The Enterprise Edition of TapRooT System Software must be fully installed on the SQL Server hosting it.
There is no way of installing it elsewhere, installing the database seperately, or any other tricks that are going to get the Version 4 TapRooT System Software on your SQL Server. There are certain procedures that are ran as the software installs, as well as serial number validation. Procedures which cannot be avoided.
So for all of you DBAs out there, I apologize as I know it’s uncomfortable to install ‘client’ software on a server. But it is a must. And the System Software client can be uninstalled via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel as soon as the software is fully installed and running.
NOTE: This is not an issue in the Version 5 software. But we’ll cover that when it’s time.
Thanks for reading! See you next week.
